Private golf clubs in Scottsdale starts Construction on New Golf Facilities

A few months ago in the Private golf clubs in Scottsdale club newsletter we mentioned our excitement about embarking on the beginning of our summer golf project of renovating our practice park, with the first phase of enhancements beginning June 3rd.  In that initial communication of the enhancements, we shared some pictures of a new short game renovation on the south side  of the range as well as the main practice tee.  In addition Scottsdale golf club plans to upgrade all the target greens on the entire practice field, at specific distances so you can add more function to your practice sessions.

So what does this entail for Scottsdale golf club?

Private golf clubs in Scottsdale will be spraying the turf for the purpose of prepping  the grass on the practice tees prior to  construction which will take place over the next 6-8 weeks.  Following this prepping , you will see the existing turf turn brown over the next few days .  This will start  the process leading to the reshaping of the area.  You will still be able to practice and warm up before play as usual

The  Private golf clubs in Scottsdale short game area as it will not be renovated on the north end of the range will be available from 7:00am until 6:00 pm on Tuesdays through Sundays.  The putting only green by the men’s grill will be available during those days as well.  Please understand that if for no other reason than for your safety in a construction zone, we must keep the entire work site closed at certain times.  With the fact that we are updating most all of the Scottsdale private golf courses including the south tee, range floor and short game area, unfortunately there is no way we could enable full swing practice during construction.

What will be accomplished during this closure of the Scottsdale private golf courses?

The short game area at Scottsdale private golf courses will be remodeled to include an 8500 square foot putting only green, greenside and fairway bunkers for group or individual practice, not to mention chipping and pitching greens offering various grasses and lies to improve that part of your game.  We will design nine (9) tif eagle Bermuda grass putting surface greens ( The same type as what the greens are on the course) on the range floor to double as target greens at specific yardages from the main tee. The short course greens will be in play for juniors as well as fun competition days when we can close the practice area some afternoons.  Fronting these 9 greens, we will be adding sand bunkers for a similar look as to what you would experience on the main golf course.  The main south practice tee at Scottsdale private golf courses will be enlarged in depth and width to enable more players an opportunity to practice off a new 328 Bermuda type turf.

We can assure you we will open this entire area as soon as it is fully grown in and ready for practice.

Thank you for your understanding and we will keep you apprised with our progress throughout the construction phase of your practice facility.
